I...love...this...case. The 500r is fantastic, silent, great looking, easy to use, I am extremely pleased with my purchase, worth every cent. I will upload some pictures in a bit.

And here is the first picture
100_7138.jpg
The odd cable hanging out front is for the side fan and you can see in the 5.25" bays where I got lazy with my Sentry 2 fan controller cables tongue.gif

As for the graphics card, that has been the stand in I have had for just under a year now tongue.gif Its a Nvidia geforce 210, and I shall be ordering my Gigabyte windforce 7950 this thursday.

ya that is weird, ive never had any issues accidental putting the negative on positive or positive on negative with those connectors on any of my other builds, just with this case..or maybe it might be the board that's "temperamental" with the power flow. I dont know, im just glad i fixed it. i just thought i would make that post for anyone else having a problem in the future as it was driving me NUTS!!! Glad to hear you story of success finding the problem too. Now if this was a car i would have more than made sure to connected the + to + and - to - , LoL.

Chose this case for my first ever build, and I have to say the 400R is awesome for first time builders on a budget. The case is very spacious with ample room to manage cables.
